Hello and greetings fellow otaku,
Now as most of you may or may not have known, Adult Swim aired the first episode of the English dub of Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood last Saturday. Well for those of you were not able to catch it, here is your first look of the new series. Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood is a complete retelling of the original Fullmetal Alchemist Series in which it focuses more on the manga than the original series itself. But now for those of you who are unfamiliar with the original series, here is a brief overview of the series.
The series focuses on Edward and Alphonse Elric, two brothers who were bound by fate from trying to resurrect their dead mother by using Alchemy. However, they were unsuccessful by which they were punished for their actions in which Edward looses an arm and a leg and Alphonse loses his entire body but his soul is placed inside a suit of armor. Edward vows to find a way to restore their bodies in which he decided to become a State Alchemist. Ok, let’s fast forward about 51 episodes.
Now as I mentioned just a moment ago, FMA Brotherhood is a complete retelling of the original Fullmetal Alchemist series. The series features most of the original characters from the original series and a few new characters as well. The cast for the English dub features most of the original voice actors and actresses from the original series. Now I don’t know about you but if a series features the original cast, well that’s something to appreciate.
Overall I feel that the English dub of FMA Brotherhood was really good. But it is still a little bit early to tell, but I will be watching both the dub and sub versions of the series in which I will give you guys a full review. So stay tuned everyone and until next time. Remember that their is a ton of great anime and manga out there, all you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
